Coaches love to play head games. When Loyola coach Charley Toomey was asked about his upcoming game with Johns Hopkins, minutes after his team had beaten Lehigh on Sunday, he mumbled something about having to watch game film. Now, that's funny. No. 1 Loyola and No. 6 Hopkins are within walking distance of each other, and they recruit the same players. Yet, Toomey said he has to look at film before he can go into detail about the Blue Jays. There is nothing these two coaches and programs don't know about each other.

UNDER AN overcast sky early Saturday morning, more than 50 horse lovers got down and dirty clearing hiking and horse trails along the perimeter of the Lake Shore Athletic Complex on Woods Road. The spring cleanup, sponsored by the Pasadena Horse and Pony Association, drew riders young and old, a few non-horse people, even a politician and a county official or two to cut debris and pick up trash along the almost five miles of trails at the complex. The volunteers, many accustomed to the barn-mucking aspects of horse ownership, were armed with trimmers of various sizes and plastic trash bags, ready to attack sticker bushes and trash along the trails.

When Kristyn Kuhn started working at Severn School in the early 1990s, students were still using the original 1922 dining hall and a gym and academic buildings from the 1960s. Plays were performed in a basement where low ceilings made staging the balcony scene of Romeo and Juliet a claustrophobic experience. "Juliet's head was bumping into a sprinkler head on the ceiling," said Kuhn, now the school's director of communications and the parent of two sons in the upper school. "There were great programs, but the facilities were so poor."

The people of Deer Park have spoken. The question is, have they spoken wrongly?Residents of the western Baltimore County community turned out in force at a recent public hearing to tell county officials they wanted no part of a government plan to build a recreation facility near the corner of Deer Park Road and Berrymans Lane. The county and the state would have jointly ponied up about $2 million for 138 acres of privately owned farmland. About 19 acres would have been used for the park, the rest as a buffer for the NTC state's Soldiers Delight environmental area to the south of the intersection.

The Troy Park Tennis and Sports Center, a multi-use athletic park in Elkridge, was supposed to be developed enough to host a $220,000 WTA International-level event next month, but because funding did not come through as expected in December, the tournament is being moved. The Tennis Center at College Park will be the site for this year's Citi Open, formerly known as the Mid-Atlantic Women's Tennis Championship, from July 23 to 31. Meanwhile, Troy Park's developers wait for an independent economic impact study, approved by the Maryland Stadium Authority last week, before pursuing other sources of financing.

LIFE ALONG the congested eastern section of Mountain Road just got a little more complicated, thanks to a new county public works project on Woods Road. Earlier this month, a sign appeared, seemingly overnight, informing commuters that a section of Woods Road would soon close temporarily. Vehicles coming from Mountain Road would be allowed only as far west as the Lake Shore Athletic Complex. No dates for road closure were listed on the sign. "The sign just appeared telling us that Woods Road was closed," said Wilbert Parks, a Ryan Road homeowner.

Advancing a Loyola College dream downfield, the city Planning Commission approved last night the school's proposed acquisition of 71 acres for a large athletic complex -- over the outspoken objections of a dozen people who say it would destroy Woodberry's sylvan beauty. For nearly three years, Loyola officials have tried to come to terms with criticism of the project, which in its first phase would involve an intercollegiate athletic field with 6,000 spectator seats for lacrosse or soccer, along with two smaller practice fields.

Philip Dibben used to ride his horses from his Pasadena home about a mile to Bodkin Creek across open fields. More recently, he has had to truck his horses to Prince George's, Carroll or Montgomery counties to find trails because those he once used have been developed. "The trails that we have ridden for years have been disappearing," he said. The Pasadena Horse and Pony Association, of which Dibben is vice president, is working to change that. In response to a growing need for public horse-riding areas, the group is working on a volunteer effort to develop horse trails around the Lake Shore Athletic Complex.
